EHR v Covid-19. Pandemic mask history

https://www.ctvnews.ca/health/coronavirus/a-history-of-pandemic-masks-why-doctors-wore-beaks-during-the-plague-1.4890564

I did NOT know that these beaked masks were full of theriac, a mixture of 55 herbs, intended to cleanse the air before the plague doctor breathed in.

AND that plague doctors carried long rods to maintain distance from others. I wonder where I can order MY “social distancing rod.” Can’t find one on Amazon, although this might do.

The article is fascinating. I’ll take a break from EHR pontification today.
